A luxurious Art Nouveau complex by the sea, and Italy's firsts casino in 1908. It was here that one of the first films shot outdoors, the 'Battesimo di Nave' was made. In 1917, it hosted the Rapallo Convention, in which the allies of the Entente attempted to draft a common strategy after the defeat at Caporetto: this led to the creation of the Supreme War Council, which then met at Versailles together with the United States. Guests have included Eleonora Duse, the Duke of Windsor with Wally Simpson, King Farouk, Hussein of Jordan, Constantine of Greece, Rita Hayworth, Hemingway and Marconi.
